Harry: I'll Rotate The Team

Harry: I'll Rotate The Team

Harry Redknapp has warned that he will rotate his side to keep everyone fresh.

Redknapp said;

'The players know there is fierce competition for places. Everyone else changes their team around. Liverpool have done it for the past 90-odd games in a row."

'So players shouldn't get too upset if they don't play. I've got to keep the players fresh and swap it around. It's part of the game."

'And it's not as if I'm bringing mugs in to replace them. We've got a good squad. There are some decent players waiting for an opportunity to play. They're desperate to get into the team.'


Harry is likely to bring Fernandes back into the squad to face West Ham. He has kept a similar team throughout the matches this year, deciding against changing a winning team.

His new signings where also unfit but players such as Kranjcar, Fernandes, Douala and Cole are now recovering and ready for first team action.

think a bit of freshness is needed , otherwise a couple of more losses and you could be on a worrying slide !

Thats a good idea in one way but a bad idea in another. The players who play regular will want to play regular but they wont if he is rotating it. But the fringe players will get more of a chance so they will be happy.

A tweak here & there. A bit of commom sense needed.

Small changes now and again are good but changes for the sake of it like Benitez does at Liverpool are not needed, why he can't select the same side in two games running I'll never know. You can't get momentum if you keep chopping an changing, unless you have to. Hopefully it'll just be the odd switch here and there. If we are winning you don't change a team do you. A couple for the next game wouldn't be a bad thing...
